First Generation Initiative Scholar Frydha Cordova-Fragozo was one of only 80 students nationwide accepted into the prestigious JPMorgan Chase Sophomore Development Fellowship program. The “early insight” fellowship offers second-year university students who self-identify as Black, Hispanic or Native American a path to a successful career in financial services.

This intensive program develops technical and professional business skills, builds a network within JPMorgan Chase, and offers the firm’s colleagues and leaders as mentors. Over three months, students participated in virtual trainings and two live sessions in Chicago and New York City offices, with travel and accommodations paid by JPMorgan Chase. Successful Fellows will have the opportunity to apply for a summer internship at the end of the program.
